Editorial Reviews

Imagine all the fury of a prehistoric carnivore combined with the ferocity of the largest crocodile known to man and you have the makings of nonstop terror. Run for your life as Gereco Corporation's experiment to manipulate a rapid-growth hormone gets out of control, and a ravenous monster gets out of its cage. Now the residents of the once-peaceful Grant's Lake have only the talents of a crude Australian reptile hunter, the short-handed local sheriff, his daughter the animal control expert, and her boyfriend, to save them from the insatiable jaws of a beastly feeding frenzy

DINOCROC

With a name like that how could I not own this film right, I know, I thought the same thing. Produced by the legendary Roger Corman I just had to have it. Of course I did see it on the SyFy Channel and then got the DVD upon its release. Still the film is called “Dinocroc” so anyone that has read any of my reviews before knows that I would have to have this.

A mad scientist has found the DNA of a prehistoric creature and wants to mix it with modern crocodiles, he is successful. He creates two but one of them kills the other and makes its escape from the lab. It makes its way out side unto the public, fresh food. So the company that spawned this creature sets out to capture it, even bringing in an Australian hunter. But the local animal control officer and sheriff are on the job as well, which could expose the company.

This is exactly what you would expect from the SyFy channel and the great Roger Corman. The film had three writers who have worked with Corman before or again after this, one in particular wrote other Corman flicks like “Big Bad Mama” 1 and 2, “Raptor”, and “Dinoshark”. They all crafted a good creature feature here and a true B movie complete with characters that you may not even care about, great body count material. The acting is on par with the script but that just makes it more fun and fits the style of the flick. The film was directed by Kevin O’Neil who would also direct “Dinoshark”.

This was good over all, not the best Corman flick but still good. It would have two sequels in “Supergator” and “Dinocroc vs. Supergator”, wish “Supergator would be released on DVD. Also it would have been cool to get a commentary or something on this DVD. Over all this was a good flick, good for a SyFy flick.

Schlock expert Roger Corman presents and yet another monster flick, this one involves genetic experiments on a crocodile. Scientists create two; one kills the other and escapes into the wild, jeopardizing a whole community. No surprise, the evil owner of the genetic research company (Joanna Pacula) denies any responsibility when the bodies start to pile up. She even sees fit to blame her head researcher (Bruce Weitz) for the whole unfortunate affair, insisting he really didn't work for her. Meanwhile she hires croc expert (Costas Mandylor) to trap the escaped beastie and destroy the evidence. The usual mayhem ensues with one shocking exception. There's a grisly death (normally a taboo in films) that seems to be included just to enjoy the plight of this poor victim. It's an odd choice for a filmmaker to make and comes off as a cheap shot. Otherwise, if you like movies featuring rampaging monsters with insatiable appetites, you may enjoy this one. It does just what it's supposed to, hits all the usual notes (the one high note notwithstanding), and does it well enough that it is entertaining. The acting is marginal (especially Matt Borlenghi), only Bruce Weitz and Charles Napier really acquit themselves, the rest don't count. I've seen far worse monster movies, which sounds like a strange endorsement. But it's in my collection and every once in a while I bring it out and watch it.

Another absolutely crazy crocodile that has been used as a scientific experiment! Let's face it...if you like nutty, unreal animals, you'll enjoy DinoCroc. It is in the same realm as huge snakes/boas/anacondas, sharks, octopi, lizards/komodo dragons, etc. & is simply an escape from the real world that lets you watch all the destruction/carnage that these animals cause. If you are a true fan of these type of movies, you'll enjoy it (even when you're picking apart how the things that are happening are not possible)! I love these type of movies & I know they are not for everyone but if you like them, you'll like this one.

It is not often that a novelization comes out months and months before the movie gets released, but it did with this film. So having read the book almost a year earlier I was anxious to watch this one as soon as I could get my hands on it. A big medical firm has gotten a hold of a rare fossil and is using the DNA in some experiments.

But one of the test animals breaks out and escapes into a nearby swamp/lake. With accelerated growth and a huge appetite, the company knows they must retrieve the animal quickly. But they don't seem to react quickly enough as the creature grows faster than they expect. An Australian crocodile hunter is brought in. Together with the local animal control officer and the sheriff they set out to track and stop the beast.

This could easily have felt like a fifth movie in the Carnosaur series (Carnosaur 1-3, Raptor) but other than the accelerated growth there is no connection. This one is fresh and new. Sort of a cross between a Jurassic Park move and a giant crocodile movie. The acting was reasonable and some of the scenes where handles extremely well (i.e. the meshed scenes as the boy looks for his dog while his brother stays home). An above average dino flick that makes typical Corman use of building suspense instead of overabundant special effects. Check it out.

I'm surprised Dinocroc doesn't have a somewhat elevated reputation within the realm of low-budget sci-fi monster movies. True, it has its weaknesses, but compared to many other similar films it comes off pretty well. The script tells a familiar story of science gone wrong as a genetic experiment results in a ravenous prehistoric pseudo-crocodile which proceeds to terrorize the people of a small town. The monster--that would be the Dinocroc of the title--looks decent for a low-budget creation and is appropriately fearsome. The big difference between Dinocroc's script and that of many similar features is that a great deal of time is invested in the main characters, who generally come off as rather more realistic than the types who usually populate such films. They aren't all likable, but they are for the most part fairly true to life. Because of this, the on screen perils they face have a bit of an edge to them. This is particularly the the case when a young boy meets a grisly demise at the hands of the Dinocroc. The scene is set up well and carries an emotional impact that is a little rare for movies of this caliber. Though the ending does allow for a sequel, it doesn't ruin the preceding story and is a little ambiguous in nature, so even those viewers (like myself) who hate the usual "cheat" endings horror movies are known for shouldn't get their feathers ruffled. Obviously Dinocroc isn't a classic and it is very much a b-movie, it is nonetheless much better than some of its contemporaries and worth a watch by fans of the genre.
